Intel presents a foldable PC at CES 2020


When the Intel PC is unfolded, the screen converts in a monitor of 17 inch. And when folded it looks like a traditional laptop. It also has a kickstand at the back so you can pair it with a wireless keyboard and mouse to use the entire screen real estate. There’s an option to use an on-screen keyboard as well.

This prototype of PC is called Horseshoe Bend. The OLED display is 4:3 and 17.3 inches diagonal when unfolded. Unfortunately, Intel wouldn’t let fully fold the screen, so we can’t tell you all that much about how the Intel-designed hinge feels to actually use.

What we can say is that Intel really does seem to be pushing this form factor, and it expects to be working with several manufacturers to help develop these devices in the not-too-distant future.

One of the features this computer is going to have is Thunderbolt 4 and Wi-Fi 6 Connectivity.

With this PC concept it is an important indicator of where is the future of the screen of future computers and Smartphones. This PC is using regular Windows 10, but Intel expects Microsoft’s next generation OS to be Windows 10X.
